IT Consulting for Manufacturers of the Future

By nature, manufacturers are hyper-focused on producing as efficiently as possible. More so than ever, that goal requires a mastery of technology. In fact, the tech on the assembly line is so specialized these days, that IT systems often take a backseat. This could be a missed opportunity to gain a competitive edge.

At Kelser, we think like manufacturers.

For nearly 40 years, we’ve been based in Connecticut—a state with rich manufacturing history, present, and future.

Our technology consulting practice designs and manages IT environments that simplify processes and enable our clients to increase output. From family owned shops to international giants, we’re proud to help manufacturers not just compete, but lead their industry to the cutting edge of manufacturing processes - enabled by secure, reliable technology systems. 

Our IT Consulting Process for Manufacturers

Making the Optimal IT System for Your Manufacturing Firm

Networking, business continuity, security, and more—all components of our customized approach.

Unlike businesses that exist purely in an office environment, manufacturers need IT solutions that go beyond the desk. Not just any IT provider is up to the challenge. Kelser engineers routinely design networks and integrations for manufacturing equipment, supply chain management, and the hardware and software your company relies on.

We enable employees on the shop floor, staff in the office, and those at offsite customers to securely and easily access the same IT systems and tools.

Since even short network outages can come with a big cost for manufacturers, we understand that reliability is paramount. As is security. Manufacturers have more network-enabled equipment and trade secrets than any other industry, which makes manufacturing firms of all sizes prime targets for hackers.

Industry cybersecurity regulations and supplier requirements have also become stricter in recent years. Kelser is a national leader in cybersecurity for manufacturers and specializes in strategies and programs that can make your plant as secure and compliant as it is efficient.
